adhesive application

I would like to know, should I use an all over adhesive or just around the perimeter? I am installing the flooring in my bathroom. The bathroom is 4x9 approx. I removed the sink and I am hoping to avoid removing the toilet seeing that it is the item to have to cut around. The subfloor is in great shape, I donít think there will need to be any work done there. Can I avoid moving the toilet and what type of adhesive application will work best.

Thank You

Remove the toilet, If it ever needs replaced you don't want to replace the floor with it, since the base of one toilet to the next can vary greatly.

Use the flooring manufacturer reccomended adhesive.

Full spread installation will show every imperfection in the subfloor your gluing to.

A perimeter attached installation is more forgiving with subfloor irregularities.


15 minutes to pull and a new wax ring, 10 minutes to reinstall(new unrusty bolts come with the wax ring)

Thank you, I will pull it out. I did come across two small spots along the wall that shows signs of water damage. (just under the sink and next to the tub) I am going to replace that before moving on, so this will slow me down a little. Thank you again
